Return Engagement of "Tbi BatMe Cri st
Petce" "Uncle Ton's Capin" of Pictutis
At theirs 21st and 22nd.
A short time ago at the Vita
graph Theatre J, Sturat Black-
ton's "Battle Cty of Pesoe" was
given Hi initial performance. It
ii the greatest pieoe of work jet
accomplished by any film record,
and it will go down as a piece o
epic work clcBely rivalling the
famoui "Uuole Tom's Cabin."
The situations are not bo Te'y
different. In one we have the
days of slavery, slavery to power
Tb'day we have slavery just as
flagrantly shewn in th helpless
ness with whioh we lie in the way
of any chance enemy that may
happen to attack as
Unole Tom's case was jast one
out of thousands, but what of the
ifcnation toda? We are slaves
in the grip of onr unpreparedneis
We think we are humane when we
listen to the peace propaganda
that is constantly preached by
many of our contemporaries, but
are we human?
Onr wives and our children will
be delivered into the hands of the
enemy and we who sat back in onr
chain and refused to contemplate
war, are we any better than slave
diivers? With our own hands we
bind the fetters of cruelty on the
frail hands of the women acd
children of Amerioa who in time
of war always suffer the cruelest
MTh Battle Cry of' Peace" is a
spur toward preparedness. Not
in order to deolare war, bat in
order to prevent it Many have
read the book "Defensaless Ameli
as,", whioh has for its plot the
laying bare of every weakness of
the country we love to vandal
hands, who at the slightest ohanae
would tear it to pieces.
Through the generalities of war
shown in all thsir blatant crudity.
w are subtly led up to a specific
instance; we are taken into our
own homes where the head of tl e
family spouta peace and the ohil
dren are content to have it to
And then com is war. It isn't so
difnoult as it sounds. You would
be surprised if you knew with
what rapidity ur scanty defeossB
could be swept away. Our navy,
hopelessly inad qiate, is worse
stillj so that the fleet may be more
The ' Battle Cry of Peace,"
then, is a frank setting forth of a
problem that ought to be faced by
every man and every woman of
today. It pleads for better sol
diers. It shows the folly, of lay
ing down arms. It takes up the
words of many brave mea of to
day as well as yesterday." Men
are not afraid to speak what is
in their hearts for the welfare cf
We are all fighting for the
peaoe, universal peaoe, bat to buy
it, and at the price cf honor,
never. We should educate young
America as the youngsters of for
eign countries are educated, not
to fight and bring carnage over the
land, but to hold their country
sacred as their homes, and. to up
hold its honor above -all other
things iu the world.
Ths Battle Cry of Peace" is a
clarion of evolution. As oar
brother, the cave man, had to
struggle fcr surviva1, so must we
prepare to meet our difficulties, so
thst in time a race cf men will
take the places we leave them
and do honor to cur statesman

have lived and learned before us

How She Was Relieved from
Pain by Lydia E. Pinkham's
Taunton, Mass. " I had pains in both
sides and when my periods came I had
to stay at home
from work and suf
fer a long time.
One day a woman
came to our house
and asked my
mother why I was
told her that I suf
fered every month
and she said, 'Why
don't you buy a
bottle of Lvdia. E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound? ' My
mother bought it and the next month I
was so well that I worked all the month
without staying at home a day. I am
in good health now and have told lots of
girls about it" Miss Clarice Mown,
22 Russell Street, Taunton, Mass.
Thousands of girls suffer in silence
every month rather than consult a phy
sician. If girls who are troubled with
painful or irregular periods, backache,
headache, dragging-down sensations,
fainting spells or indigestion would take
